It has been revealed that PJ Harvey composed part of the score for the Young Vic’s current production of Hamlet in London.

The show, which runs until January 21, 2012 and stars Michael Sheen in the title role, sees the character of Ophelia - played by Vinette Robinson – performing some of Harvey’s compositions live on stage, reports Wears The Trousers.
